It’s still hard getting up on these summer mornings, isn’t it? But our first Monday back in school went nicely. We checked and corrected homework and we read and discussed three chapters of Holes. Fourth graders worked on the four areas of California in History, and fifth graders worked on how native peoples adapted to the resources readily available in their regions. Both grades worked on patterns and problem solving in math. And we finished our line art project.
Homework: Write spelling words 1-5 either five (fourth grade) or ten (fifth grade) times each in cursive. Write a sentence for each word. (2) Do the Holes study guide for chapters 8-10. (3) Do “Using Long Vowels” and “Finding Base Words” work sheets. (4) Fourth grade math: Do pages 16-19 and “Separate the Dots.” Fifth grade math: Do page 15-16, 18-19 and “Gridlock.” (5) Do Addition with Regrouping practice sheet.
